Now I'm VERY intrigued!

Does the Captain proto have a liner lock?

The Captain looks cool! I might have to add that to my list! :eek:

Very... stocky!

Judging strictly by the hole and the rivet, it seems to be a small-ish to medium-ish sized knife (somewhere between a Navigator 2 and an Delica 4)

Thanks Kristi,

I am sure this one will raise some eyebrows. Some may even call it ugly.
I look forward to handling it however as it has some strange appeal.

I think I like the captain. It looks like you could chop a tree down with it or something. It seems kind of axe like or something...

Well I will be. The Captian really has my interest. It really looks like a Mans knife - no sissy stuff hjere. And I am not one to jump all over the newest most fangled knife on the market - prefering the Spydie classics. But this has the makings of a classic......

Thanks for the pic - I will stay tuned! :D

Here's a bit more info... didn't have time earlier... hope this helps...

Jason Breeden custom collaboration is a very ergonomic knife with a G-10 handle, steel liners and a VG-10 blade. It is a liner lock and has a large belly for skinning, a re-curve on the inside for cutting things like boxes. It has a very unique look. It also feels great in the hand.

this list and the pics of the captain are blowing me away, I've been like this :eek: during the last 5 minutes...

I got a question too: is the UKPK becoming a regular model? (by regular I mean not a sprint run)
that would be the best news ever because it's the perfect office EDC.

Just piping in here, since the UKPK is *my* favorite EDC... there have been several comments in threads around here about Sal making the UKPK a worldwide available product. The UKPK is on a US INVASION!!! :D

The Captain sure looks interesting.....I'm anxious to check it out...at first glance thought it was a dedicated oyster shucking knife! :p

Thanks for the great info Kristi. How was the response to the Superhawk? Did people like the prototype? Can you tell us more about the Superhawk? I LOVE the Captain :p

Thanks for all the info Kristi, you are so awesome :)

The Lum is great news to hear, this model is one of those I missed on it's first go. The Captain looks really nifty IMHO, it's cute in that Dodo kind of way ;)
